Washington Trust Bank is committed to helping you protect yourself against fraud. With our improved alert system, you will be notified of questionable debit or credit card activity, and you are automatically enrolled.

The new WTB Fraud Detection Service is a free service whereby you will receive a text* message, phone call and/or email, to notify you of potentially suspicious activity on your debit card. When you receive a text, telephone alert, and/or email from the WTB Fraud Detection Service, follow the instructions to confirm or dispute the activity in question. If you are notified via phone call, you will also need to confirm or dispute the activity and you will have the option of speaking to a fraud analyst.

Remember, our messages will never ask for your PIN or account number.

If you have questions regarding the new WTB Fraud Detection Service, please contact our Priority Service Team at 800.788.4578.

*You will not be charged for any text message sent to U.S customers who have service through AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, or T-Mobile. Data rates may apply to customers with other service carriers.
